Aim of Education
Education aims at making children capable of becoming responsible, productive and useful
members of a society. Knowledge, skills and attitudes are built through learning experiences and
opportunities created for learners in school. It is in the classroom that learners can analyse and
evaluate their experiences, learn to doubt, to question, to investigate and to think independently.
The aim of education simultaneously reflects the current needs and aspirations of a society as well
as its lasting values and human ideals. At any given time and place it can be called the contemporary
and contextual articulations of broad and lasting human aspirations and values.An understanding of learners, educational aims, the nature of knowledge and the nature of the school as a social organization can help us arrive at principles to guide classroom practices.
                   Conceptual development is thus a continuous process of deepening and enriching
connections and acquiring new layers of meaning. Simultaneously theories that children have about the natural and social world develop, including about themselves in relation to others, which provide them with explanations for why things are the way they are and the relationship between cause and effect. Attitudes, emotions and values are thus an integral part of cognitive development, and are linked to the development of language, mental representations, concepts and reasoning. As children’s metacognitive capabilities develop, they become more aware of their own beliefs and are capable of regulating their own learning.
